Subject: I was on other side...
Yes, I was at that time in the Czechoslovakian army as a paratrooper. We knew that what was happening in Vietnam was very important also for us. We loved our country, however we hated communism. I was specially trained in a deep penetration behind an enemy line. We were the Pershing hunters. I knew and also only my mother, that if anything will happen and I would be dropped behind the front, that I would not fight against American and their Allied. I was ready to join them in the fight against an evil system as was communism. Everything what a president Lyndon Johnson said was the true.
